life-sized self-portrait by GregStevens life-sized self-portrait by GregStevens
Finally, my "almost life-sized" self-portrait is completed. Or at least, as completed as it's going to be.

Here is me posing next to it at an earlier stage:



Here is a photo of the piece early on during work:



I have blogged a little about the experience of working on this piece on my homepage here:

Technical Details:

4' by 6' paper cut from a large roll. (Hot press watercolor paper.). Black, white, and multiple shades of gray charcoal stick primarily, with some willow stick and some charcoal pencil for detail work (mainly the eyes, face, and hair).

I worked on this on and off for about a month. Completely exhausting. I think I will take a break and do tablet work for a while.

This is very good with great attention to muscular detail. Of course, seeing you as the model, one can see where your inspiration came from.

It's nicely done! Wow, this is amazing! I love it! And it's a life-sized self-portrait of you, which IMO is even greater! I can't imagine how much work you put in this, I admire your hard work!
